Some choice, rare footage from Deftones' infamous 1997 set at The Press Club in Sacramento has been hitting the internet lately. For the uninitiated, this particular show came after a four-month hiatus from touring, and a month before the release of sophomore album Around the Fur, which made the alt-metal pioneers legitimate superstars. Two weeks ago we highlighted their crushing take on "Be Quiet and Drive," and now we've got our hands on "My Own Summer (Shove It)" — which is reportedly the first time Deftones ever played the song live.
But The Press Club set was, without a doubt, fucking awesome. It is genuinely heartwarming to watch a hometown crowd go nuts and give the boys a hero's welcome. You'll especially enjoy Chino's crowdsurf at the 2:18 mark.
Additionally, footage has surfaced that shows Deftones allegedly soundchecking "My Own Summer" from that same show. Watch that below.
